“Head to this golden-stone village in the heart of the Dordogne for its Sunday-morning market, and you’ll come out laden with delectable treats. Producers of all manner of local produce line the narrow, winding alleys, overlooked by half-timbered houses. Duck is the Dordogne’s delicacy, so you’ll find jars of confit de canard and pâté and — if it’s the right season — strawberries, asparagus and truffles. You can also buy wine direct from producers and bread that’s been baked in situ in a mobile bread oven.
Where to eat: L’Atelier is a charming restaurant offering modern twists on classic dishes.”
We have offered through AirBNB to host a Ukrainian family for as long as they might need to settle in to life in France.
The French government have offered support to fleeing families and we think our little house would be ideal for a family of six.
We are therefore holding off taking bookings from paying guests for the moment and trust this meets with your understanding.
Calling all fans of LPC: We only have two sequential weeks still available this Summer from Saturday 19th June to Saturday 4th July. While this won’t be of much good cheer to those with young children it does mean that those unencumbered by the school dates can still reserve their ideal get-away-from-it-all break in the French country side (less than half an hour from the nearest airport (Bergerac) and served by Southampton, Gatwick, Stansted, Manchester, London City, Southend, Birmingham, Bristol, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Exceter, Leeds, Liverpool and Rotterdam, Brussels and Nice).
Please use the link below to check availability but contact us directly for £100 off the Trip Advisor price.
We look forward to hearing from you.
We’ve had no less than four enquiries for New Year and early January but I’m afraid due to some rough treatment of the house from recent guests we are in need of some maintenance. Please expect Le Petit Capelier to be available from 14th January. Apologies for the inconvenience.
Nous avons reçu pas moins de quatre demandes de renseignements pour le Nouvel An et le début de janvier, mais je crains que, du fait du traitement brutal de la maison par les clients récents, nous ayons besoin d’entretien. Attendez-vous à ce que Le Petit Capelier soit disponible à partir du 14 janvier. Mes excuses pour le derangement.
Please note two weeks in July (13th to 27th) and Aug (3rd to 17th) are already booked so please do get in touch to secure your stay for Summer this year.
Le Petit Capelier was almost fully booked through the Summer of 2017 from mid June to mid September. We’re expecting similar interest this year and as we’ve taken bookings for six weeks of the Summer already we think it likely that the cottage will be popular once again for 2018.
So, if you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to escape to rural France with not a care in the world (aside from how delicious your next meal might be, what wine to have with your camembert or whether to swim before breakfast or after lunch) then now might be the time.
Direct bookings taken during the whole of April 2018 for stays between May and September 2018 will be subject to a 5% fee reduction (compared with Trip Advisor’s costs, not including cleaning fee or returnable deposit).
